Abstract

Many studies on control of dynamic biped walking have been done in the past two decades. While the biped dynamics is highly nonlinear, the stability analysis, if done, was usually based on a linearized model. The validity of the linearized model may become questionable if the walking involves states that are too far away from the operating point. In this paper, an approach for evaluating the robustness based on the linearized Poincare' map is suggested and examined. The Poincare' map technique is often used in studying periodic motion. The computational method that results in a measurement for evaluating the robustness of biped locomotion is developed. Our simulation study has verified that the suggested measurement is a good indicator.
